Greener Pastures Land Fund
Habitat for Horses is looking to expand our abilities as an Equine Rescue and our Educational Programs through our Greener Pastures Land Fund.
From Jerry Finch, President of Habitat for Horses:
I watched a horse win at a halter class event the other day, a beautiful mare led by a beautiful young lady. A few weeks ago, I saw a perfect thoroughbred win at a jumping event. On both occasions, the adopters wanted me to thank our supporters, because without their help, both of these horses would have died a long time ago.
Last year, Habitat for Horses rescued over 350 horses from situations involving abuse and neglect. While some of the damage might have been caused by a lack of money or knowledge on the part of the owner, it all resulted in a horse coming close to death. The horse entered our gates asking for help, for one more chance, and that chance was given because of our supporters who opened up their hearts and checkbooks.
During the same year, Habitat for Horses found adoptive homes for 330 horses. These homes are inspected every six months, just to insure that the horses are safe, that any problems can be addressed and that both the adopter and the horse are happy. That’s our commitment to the horses we bring in – that they never again will suffer the pains of starvation or the horror of abuse.Read More
